Advanced Technologies and Design, Poor Leadership

Mechanical Design Engineer (Current Employee) Hampton, VA

ProsA fast-paced, high demand environment, ETL provides quick turnaround on customer demands for aviation prototype composites and hardware. The work flow is continuous, so there's no down time. Many of the engineers here are friendly, knowledgeable, and creative. Insurance coverage and health policies are adequate. Excellent in-house machine shop and experienced composite shop will aid in design-to-product turnaround. You learn a great deal in a short time working as an engineer at Eagle. It's a good place to start your engineering career out of school or to learn, design, and product hardware using advanced materials and material processes.

ConsCheap. The mantra may be to "do it fast, do it right, and stay in budget," but the budgets are laughable. The upper management provides little in the ways of bettering the workplace environment. Drop tile ceilings are stained and drooping, the roof leaks, there are large open holes in the wall that have been here for years, but employees are eviscerated if they leave extra papers near the printer. Employee/superior communications are curt and severe. Terms and phrases like "crucifixion", "hammering", and "failure" are thrown around constantly. Micromanagement leads to huge problems, and problems roll down to engineering every time, regardless of true source of fault. No one working here has the allusion that the management cares at all about employee personal life or work place safety and satisfaction.

In the prototype design world, the saying often goes, "Fail early to succeed sooner." Here it's "Fail and suffer the consequential belittling lecture."

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow standard engineering documentation practices, practice what you preach, and allow engineering managers to guide program timelines and budgets. Provide greater compensation to loyal employees, and put some money back into the building. Continue to add to the work flow but don't overstretch engineers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The work can be interesting if given an opportunity to participate. Other than that I can't think of anything else.
